Maps - Get Directions Functionality

Recommended Posts

balfred1345

Hi,

 

Can you please tell me if there is a way to add "Get Directions" functionality to the DMS2 Maps section? 

Meaning, allow the user to input their Start address, and use the Latitude and Longitude that I've already input in Maps as the End point? Then on "enter" have the map show the routing directions?

 

Thanks,

Bruce

Use the old short code, in a media box, or PLNextBox with render shortcodes checked... either content or full width  (http://demo.pagelines.me/tools/)

 

[googlemap width="100%" height="300" address="San Francisco,CA"]

 

Or just embed from a google map


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

GetMeWebDesign,

 

Thanks! Used PLNexBox and the shortcode as you suggested.

Worked. Easy.

 

I appreciate the tip.

Glad I could help. The PLNext box is a very useful extension.

Thank you GetMeWebDesign :) 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I'd like to request the option to display the "Satellite," "Hybrid," and "Terraine" in the Maps section. 
      I was able to manually accomplish this by changing line 202 in the maps.js from:
      mapTypeId:       google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
      to:
      mapTypeId:       'satellite',
      But it would be nice if there was a section option to do this. 
      Also, the map zoom level 18 isn't the highest zoom level that Google Maps is able to display. Could you please increase the number to at least 19? Thanks!

      Hi, could someone point me in the right direction please as I have no idea where i might be going wrong here.
      I've added the maps section but all I get is a blank space.
      I have created an API key (assuming that was the right thing to do) but nothing I do seems to change anything, just always have an empty placeholder. With or without the API key it doesn't make any difference.
